Public Space Protection Order Reviews

Decision Maker: Portfolio Holder for Communities

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To review a number of existing Public Space Protection Orders and to discharge the Designated Public Place Orders within Cheshire East Borough Council.


That Portfolio Holder for Communities


1        allows Designated Public Space Orders, which automatically became Public Space Protection Orders under Section 75 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, to lapse on 20th October 2020;


2        approves a consultation exercise be undertaken to review existing Public Space Protection Orders for alleygates, Dog Fouling and Dog Control and an order in Poynton; and


3        approves consultation to make Public Space Protection Orders if the statutory conditions are satisfied but that Public Space Protection Orders are not sought unless there is evidence to support their introduction.

Reasons for the decision:

Following the introduction of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 Cheshire East Council has been proactive in supporting communities having implemented a number of Public Space Protection Orders across the Borough and these orders are now subject to review.


A requirement of the Act is for the Council to review its existing Public Space Protection Orders within a three year period.  This is achieved through a consultation process, the outcomes of which will determine whether to extend, vary or discharge or simply to allow to lapse, those orders.

Alternative options considered:

The existing Public Space Protection Orders cannot be extended, varied or discharged without formal consultation.
